The algorithm song, sung to the tune of Frere Jacques, can be used to introduce the words algorithms and debug to key stage 1 children.

The ‘algorithm or advice’ PowerPoint is a mock quiz whereby children use their understanding of algorithms to state whether an image is an algorithm or just advice. Children use the following criteria - does it have a specific goal? - does it have sequenced steps?

The slides can also be printed out and given to children to place into an algorithm/advice sorting diagram. Children can then be encouraged to collect further examples inside or outside of school and add them to the diagram.
